Summary: Overall, I'm not impressed. The one plus of this product is the low price. And it does what it's supposed to do. But it's a pain in the neck to use. I won't know if I scanned a good image until I plug it into my computer after scanning the doc.

Summary: If all you want is to scan an article or recipe, where the quality of the scan isn't so important, this would be a useful product. I purchased it to scan images from antique books that would be damaged if placed on a flatbed scanner.
